    One of the problems that I see with this approach is that generally you wouldn't ask a
question "do you think that the number of inbound connections from ip X is abnormal for the
past 15 mins.  the question you would ask is the number of inbound connections for ip X abnormal
for a Tuesday at 11.15AM.  To figure out the answer to this question we would have to retrieve
telemetry from historical Tuesday data at 11.15AM and check if our value at hand for right
now is an outlier based on that data.  METRON-690 is designed to make these retrieval patterns
possible.  Because you retrieving values that are potentially more than 24 hours long I am
not sure keeping this data in Kafka is a good idea.  I think you have to retrieve the values
via a multi-get in Hbase
